The ground is known as BT Murrayfield Stadium for sponsorship reasons (at tkime of writing in 2016).
The all-seater capacity was reduced from 67,800 to 67,144 to incorporate permanent big screens in the country. The arena is the largest in Scotland and the 6th largest ground in the UK.
It is the home of the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU), and is mostly used as a venue for rugby union. The ground hosts most of Scotland’s home test matches, the Scottish Hydro Electric Cup final, as well as Pro12 and Heineken Cup matches.
